Property Title Searches
A property title search reveals any documents recorded that affect the title of a piece of property such as any prior deeds, deeds of trust, liens, judgments, easements, and any other recorded documents. The search establishes who the current owner is and what encumbrances currently exist against the property. A title search is required before a title insurance policy will be issued.
